Stowe's 3 foot snowpack is in great shape, with more SNOW tonight, and even MORE SNOW forecasted to continue through the weekend!
We will have TEN groomers out on the hill tonight, and every night right through the weekend, creating optimal conditions for the remainder of the holiday week. We will also crank up our greatly expanded snowmaking capabilities to blanket the slopes with fresh coatings of snow to augment the quantities that Mother Nature is expected to provide.
We will have ALL LIFTS and the majority of our terrain open this weekend, including both our terrain park and the ONLY halfpipe in Northern Vermont, and skiing and riding will continue to be great. We hope that you can come up to enjoy it with us! Stowe
